Check out the new trailer for Penelope over at YouTube. 🙂

IMDb user “thewirerules” was able to attend an early screening of Rendition and shares some details of the film in this thread. Tidbits include that Reese’s role is indeed the leading role and her performance is great, as expected. Meryl Streep and Reese share one strong scene in the film, while our girl has no screentime with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Rendition is a very solid film with strong performances and direction, a taut script, and great cinematography and locations. Some scenes can be hard to watch, but the various intertwining storylines pay off and are well edited, and the movie runs on a steady pace. Definetly a possible Oscar contender. The audience seemed to like the movie quite a lot when they gave it a good round of applause at the end. This version of the movie was pretty much in the final stages in terms of editing, etc., and certainly there will be some fine tuning going on.

Yay, Variety reports that Reese has signed on to star and produce a new movie, Midnight!

Universal Pictures will develop a remake of the 1939 comedy Midnight as a star vehicle for Reese Witherspoon scripted by Michael Arndt, who won the Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine.

Stuber/Parent partners Mary Parent and Scott Stuber will produce with Witherspoon and her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson. Arndt hatched the idea, which prompted the producers to team.

Midnight has “long been one of my favorite films, and it is easily one of the best comedies of the ’30s,” Arndt said. “Being given the chance to update the film with Reese in the lead is simply a dream come true.”

In the original, Claudette Colbert starred as a destitute young woman in Paris who becomes a pawn when a wealthy man tries to get rid of the gigolo wooing his wife. John Barrymore also starred in the film that was directed by Mitchell Leisen and written by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder.

The original was released by Paramount but became U property when the studio bought the pre-1948 Par library.

Project will not be next for Witherspoon, who’s deciding between several films for her next slot. She’s repped by CAA and Management 360 and Arndt by Endeavor.

According to Variety, Reese Witherspoon and Type A Films are producing a new movie, Under the Bridge:

Reese Witherspoon’s Type A Films is developing Under the Bridge, based on Rebecca Godfrey’s true-crime account of a brutal high school murder. Thirteen helmer Catherine Hardwicke is in talks to direct the pic.

There’s no word yet on whether Witherspoon will star in Bridge, which will chronicle the 1997 killing of high school student Reena Virk in a small British Columbia town and the ensuing investigation and prosecution. Godfrey, who’s from the same area, returned to her hometown to research the eight high schoolers who were charged in the case, investigating the cliques at the group’s well-off school as well as the life of Virk, the daughter of Indian immigrants. Two of the students were convicted in 2005.

Type A has bought both film rights to the book and life rights to Godfrey’s story, with the possibility of the author herself becoming a character in the pic.

Icelandic movie producer SigurjĂłn Sighvatsson is to produce a movie by Irish director Jim Sheridan, possibly to star Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio.

The movie will be a remake of Brödre (Brothers) by Danish director Susanne Bier, released in 2004. David Benioff will write the script, who is one of the highest-earning screenplay writers in Hollywood, as stated in Fréttabladid.

Some of Hollywood’s most famous actors and actresses have declared their interest in participating in the project, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Reese Witherspoon, but the cast has not been decided on yet.

Sighvatsson explained to FrĂ©ttabladid that it can be difficult to get a high-profile cast together, “Many of the biggest stars are booked many months, even years, in advance.”

April 19, 2007   •  Category: Films & ProjectsComments Off on Freeway DVD Re-release

Freeway has been re-released on DVD and may be ordered at Amazon. Here are excerpts from JoBlo’s DVD review:

Video: Presented in 16×9 “widecreen.” (Seriously, it says “widecreen” on the box.) As for the transfer, it’s still the same, non-remastered version of the film, and victim to all the grain and imperfections.

Audio: Dobly Digital 5.1 surround, THX enhanced. This is one part of the DVD that comes through.

Have you been waiting for Freeway to get the Special Edition treatment? Congratulations, you get to keep waiting! This is nothing more than a cheap re-release of the exact same DVD from 1997. C’mon, Lionsgate; you could’ve at least sprung for a real DVD menu.

Director’s Narration: Wow. This DVD is so old, they weren’t even calling ‘em commentaries yet! Writer/director Matthew Bright has plenty to say about the movie (dubbing it an “artsploitation film”), as well as some interesting tidbits on being plucked from obscurity to make his debut feature, but overall a pretty boring commentary.









To celebrate our 16 years online, here we are spotlighting 16 of our favourite Reese things from the past 16 years. You will see a new one upon refreshing or changing the page.


"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
